LOLWUT: This guy is selling a Smashed Wii U for 15,000$

Philippe Baghdassarian: "I was browsing eBay and came across this guy who smashes stuff "calls it art" and then sells it for more, in this case 14,800$." (Wii U)

Hell yeah, some idiot is going to buy that, mark my words... If Ebay doesn't take it down first lol.
nzk0  +   1107d ago
Yeah, makes me think.... maybe I should become an "artist" too :P
Snookies12  +   1107d ago
Shhh, don't give people the idea! I'm busy breaking all my systems right now...
Kingofwiiu  +   1107d ago
Yep , i just smashed my xbox 360. Most artistic thing i've ever done. Now where the fuck did I put my Vita ?

I don't know why Ebay takes down these ridiculous auctions, anyway. They make money and if someone wants to buy a piece of half burnt toast with the image of Jesus Christ AND Elvis on it, it's their right to do so!

Because eBay is sold out to vendors now... used to be so awesome when it was individual people selling their crap, but it has become a worthless site. The 1 million dollar random piece of just was always there for s#!ts and giggles. Now days companies will threaten to sue eBay if their product is made to look bad, so eBay will remove listings. They also have to worry about buyers purchasing something fraudulent, and it coming back on them. PS: NEVER buy perfume or cologne on eBay... it is fake 99.9999% of the time.

Ebay isn't going to take something down just because its in poor taste. Way too big brother censorship. (unless its something a lot more over the top like real body parts or kiddy porn)

nzk0  +   1107d ago
I'm pretty sure he will, that's the sad part lol... if he doesn't that's a epic fail though :P
1upgamer99  +   1107d ago

Wow thats really rare to find, bet its worth alot <_< NOT!!!

This isn't a shock, I seen a guy selling a Xbox (not Xbox 360) for over $1,000 bucks. What does it come with? Nothing, no cables or even a controller and it isn't a limited Ed. model too.

People like to over price things for no reason, heck I seen a guy trying to sell moded 20GB 360's for the price of a new 360 Slim 250GB. An the modding he didn't wasn't even worth it.
nzk0  +   1107d ago
Yeah when I was browsing through eBay I saw some guy selling Zelda Twilight Princess in the box for 20,000$... It's not worth ANYTHING close to that :P
Cerv-Clash  +   1107d ago
they always think there's someone somewhere(uninformed parents maybe?) that would buy it.
broken_back-man  +   1107d ago
ill bet the os on the masterpeice is faster than than the wiiu`s. even a rock is fadter!
browngamer41  +   1107d ago
Haha! So funny, I wish my U was fadter too! Fuck-n troll...
Y_5150  +   1107d ago
It looked like he smashed a bunch of broken Wii Us together and made a hideous robot statue with it. No wonder it cost so much...
3-4-5  +   1107d ago
looks like a 5th grade class project..

I love art.....not so much a fan of this guy's stuff though.
LOL_WUT  +   1107d ago
looks good all smashed up just saying. ;)
Picnic  +   1107d ago
I liked it when people were selling an 'Xbox box' on ebay for hundreds of dollars each.
TBONEJF  +   1107d ago
And this guy must be smoking too much crack what kind of idiot would buy a broken console for 15,000$ it's not art it's DUMB
profgerbik  +   1107d ago
Some die hard Nintendo collector will be all over that.
profgerbik  +   1107d ago
Could've just bought a bunch of black plastic melted it and said it was from a Wii U..

As usual these article titles are so misleading. No he didn't just smash it he built some piece of "Art" with it.

Stupid article titles for hits..

Who in their right mind would buy a smashed console that is basically a glorified paper weight for fifteen grand? Just because this guy claims it's "art"? No, just no.

He might have actually added value to it.

And this beautiful piece is titled "Rich idiot flushes 15,000 down the toilet"
MxRBrobaFett  +   1106d ago
I'm going to start throwing up on things and selling them for thousands of dollars
ThyMagicSword  +   1106d ago
What a shame when there are people who can not even afford a broken gameboy ... that is what he calls art? I shit in an empty box and sell it as art: merde de artiste, how low some "artists" can get ...where is the dignity? For 15, 000 dollars? This person deserves to be slapped in the face ...
